As Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO, recently announced in response to the Massachusetts elections: “It’s not time to leave it to any political party to take care of us once we put them in office. It’s time to organize and mobilize as never before to make every elected or aspiring leader PROVE he or she will create the jobs we need in an economy we need with the health care we need. I know we are the people who can mobilize a massive army to force elected leaders to deliver.”
We have good news. We have learned that there is a growing recognition among leading labor officials in the AFL-CIO that a massive mobilization in the streets of trade unionists and our allies will be necessary in order to ensure that the needs of working people, which have been exacerbated as a result of this devastating economic crisis, are addressed.
